Trudging Along

posted by:
Lindy

I haven’t written in a while because I don’t have much to say.  Yesterday I started feeling better.  Tomorrow is another round of chemo.  I have three treatments left.  I absolutely do not want to go.  Part of me wishes I had treatments every three weeks so I would have a more enjoyable life.  The other part of me wants to keep trudging through so I can be done sooner.  I’ll keep trudging.  I just want this behind us. 

Our lives are organized chaos right now.  Dusty is doing well.  He’s enjoying his new role at Herman Miller.  Brooklyn is having fun wrapping up summer (now that summer weather just got here).  She had a good time seeing the play Charlotte’s Web at Hope College yesterday.  Max and Samantha are great.  Samantha is not only crawling, but can occasionally pull herself to standing!  Max still does his army crawl to get around.  It’s a very interesting maneuver.    

Last Wednesday I met with the genetic testing nurse and Dr. Vander Woude.   I’ve decided to go ahead with the genetic testing.  Dr. VanderWoude is happy with the progress I’m making which is very encouraging.   

Thank you for your prayers, meals, cards, emails, cookies (my hips do not thank you), support for our parents and love.

    Your “trudging along” is such a great testimony to your faith and perseverance. “You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” Hebrews 10:36 We’re praying you through! We’ll be praying for a better round of chemo tomorrow… no more negative side effects!

    I’m on my knees praying this round of chemo will not be so hard on you, Lindy. “Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened for you”.
    Praying you can feel the loving and healing arms of God wrapped tightly around you.

    Lindy Lou – I am constantly amazed at your will to stay positive even through all of this. You are a very strong woman, which has shown through everything that you have been through. And God has blessed you with a very strong man in Dusty and very strong family on both sides. We continue to lift you up daily, praying for God’s comfort, healing, strength and peace for you all. Lots of love to you all! Tina
